Holy Week is the name for the week leading up to Easter. Beginning with Palm Sunday, continuing through Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and culminating with the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday worship, these services take us through the stories of the last week of Jesus' life on Earth.

Palm Sunday: Through story and song, we experience the moments of the week before the first Easter: Jesus entering Jerusalem in a triumphant procession, sharing in a meal with his best friends and betrayers, being handed over to suffer and die. We pray, share in the Lord's Supper, sing, and find ourselves in his story. (8:15 & 10:45am Worship)

Maundy Thursday: "A new commandment I give you: love one another." Jesus showed his love in washing the feet of his disciples, in teaching them to love one another, in giving his very life for them. That same love is for us who follow him now. We receive forgiveness of our sin through absolution and receive God's grace through the bread and cup given for us in Holy Communion. (7pm Worship)

Good Friday: "Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end." On Good Friday, we remember that not even death itself could stop Jesus from living out his love for the world. Gathered around the cross, we hear the story of the crucifixion and pray for this world God so loves. (7pm worship)

Easter Vigil: There is an old Christian tradition of keeping watch and waiting on the night before Easter, called the Easter Vigil. We gather outdoors around a fire and tell the stories of God's persistent acts of saving power, from creation onward, reminding ourselves that God has always been in the business of bringing life to death. Worship is camp style, with guitar-led and light-hearted sing-alongs. Worship includes remembering our baptisms and receiving the Lord's Supper, and ends with s'mores around the fire pit. (5pm Worship)

Easter Sunday: Alleluia! Jesus lives, and so do we. We celebrate the resurrection of our Lord with full fanfare-- choir, congregational song, prayer and praise, uplifting preaching, Holy Communion, and the reassurance: because he lives, we shall live also. Between services, we have an Easter Breakfast for all and and Easter Egg Hunt for our little worshipers. (8:15 & 10:45 Worship; 9:30 Breakfast & Egg Hunt)
